    The Department of Management, University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC), invites applications from qualified candidates for up to two full-time, tenure stream appointments in Management. The appointments will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an expected start date of July 1, 2022, or shortly thereafter.

    The University of Toronto (U of T) Scarborough is implementing a new Strategic Plan: Inspiring Inclusive Excellence.  Consistent with the values and objectives in that plan, we especially welcome candidates who self-identify as Indigenous or those who have lived experience in Black or other racialized (persons of colour) communities.  These positions are part of a cohort of similar faculty searches in Anthropology, Arts, Culture and Media, Sociology and Management. New colleagues will have the opportunity to be connected with previous cohorts of faculty from under-represented groups, including those hired through targeted efforts in the last two years in departments spanning the Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities.

    Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. degree, by the time of appointment or shortly thereafter, in Management or one of the following functional areas: Operations Management and Analytics, Marketing, Finance, Economics, Organizational Behaviour, Accounting, Strategic Management, or a related area, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance existing departmental strengths.  

    The successful candidates will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, externally funded research program.  They must provide evidence of scholarly excellence in research which can be demonstrated through the submitted research statement, ongoing innovative and independent research of international reputation, and strong endorsements from referees of high standing. In addition, a record of publications in top-ranked and field relevant journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, presentations at significant conferences, and awards and accolades are other indicators of research excellence.

    Excellence in teaching will be demonstrated by teaching accomplishments highlighted as part of the application, the teaching dossier, to include a teaching statement, sample course syllabi, and teaching evaluations, strong letters of reference, and evidence of strong communication and expository skills. Candidates must also show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and to the promotion of a respectful and collegial learning and working environment, demonstrated through the application materials.

    The successful candidates will be a member of the tri-campus Graduate Department of Management at the University of Toronto, will be cross-appointed to the Rotman School of Management and will be expected to participate in the Graduate Department of Management's graduate programs. 

    Salaries will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
